I can’t freaking believe Sierra is nine years old! She’s half way done with her childhood!
Because I’m feeling nostalgic, some pictures of Sierra from her first couple years, before I blogged.
Because all the rest of her life was blogged I won’t add in a bunch of other pictures. I’ll end the trip down memory lane with this picture of her at 2 years old pretending to be a puppy. That leaf was her bone.
And now onto current day Sierra! haha
I felt so bad about her obese horse balloon! I bought it online and filled it up myself here at home. It would not float at all when filled just the right amount. I added some more helium, still wouldn’t float. More helium, still wouldn’t float. More helium, the seams are stretching, I think- this thing is going to pop! But, it floats! I told Sierra about that but she didn’t mind her fatty horse one bit. In fact, she adores that horse. It’s since popped but she decided to tape it to the wall in her room and keep it forever 🙂
When buying for her birthday I originally thought I was going to make a realistic field/water cake scene with horse figurines on top but last minute I put that stuff back and got her Disney princess pets instead! She LOVES the Disney princess pets and had plenty of horse stuff so I figured it’d be a fun surprise she wasn’t expecting. (Since she was expecting all horse stuff) It was a great idea because that cake was one of her very favorite parts!
The glowing candle was pretty exciting for her, too.
I was so done with buying her birthday but Brooke suggested Sierra Mist (and pringles) because… Sierra Mist. It’s kind of our thing to get Sierra Sierra Mist. We put the Sierra Mist and Pringles in a pink gift bag and Sierra got a huge kick out of that small addition 🙂
She was soooo cute when we were singing to her and I was grinning like an idiot while filming her. Until the end when she went to blow out the candle and I realized I hadn’t pushed record. This happens often with me, I suck at filming stuff! 🙁
So the adorable moment was only captured by my memory. ha
